    Reckon de Kock is a bit of a Kock irl. Looks like the stereotypical annoying, big-talk keeper.

    About 40 wickets in about 85 matches or something at an average of 24ish and a rpo of over 6.5.

    And just to make his selection all the more laughable, his shirt number is 69.
    Think you're looking at his T20 stats.

    Yep.

    ABCDeV, Faf & Duminy all have those stocky frames that have the potential to pie out in later life too.

    From this series, we definitely need an attacking opener to take the game to the opposition new-ball bowlers. Ryder or McCullum. I would lean towards Ryder, because McCullum might think that he needs to build an innings, being the captain and all.

    Anyway, sick of seeing us 40/2 after 14 overs. Rather us be 70/2 with the attacking opener(s) doing their job, even if they get out doing it.

    Elgar's stocky as well. Morkel's a stick insect though and Steyn is slight.

    In all fairness I don't think anyone would argue scoring more runs for the loss of the same number of wickets is ever a bad thing.

    Ugh. Leading edge on the drive as I type from Watling.

    Right, another match where we stutter, fart, and **** our way to 210/9, which the opposition knock off in 40 overs. **** this **** and **** McCullum. **** shot. **** strategy. 60 runs on the board after 20 overs in this day and age. **** me. You'd need to score at 6 an over to get 240 from there, which is just about adequate. I don't understand the thinking behind this. Surely they can't think the middle order can whack 90 off the last 10 every single game?

    EDIT: would have been the same thing in game 2 had Williamson not played a blinder with support from Elliott.

    It' was labelled list A but it's SA tv so fair chance it's wrong.

    Looks a decent LO bowler though.

    Munro still around. Surprising the umpire can get it that wrong.

    It's a myth that batsmen always know wether they've hit it or not.

    100 dot balls and 7 fours in 24 overs. Says it all.

    Just tuned in, will be the first time watching Munro. Hope he lives up to the CW description of him.

    Open net for the fringe selections, babeh. Someone told these guys Zinzan's stat about winning the next seven and still being ranked seventh.
